Thought for the Day - The Wisdom of Life

The wisdom of life then - as I remember from an old quote from Reader's Digest (which is singularly the largest contributor to my peek into great minds through their quotes) was - "the elimination of non-essentials.'

Probably extends to everything - he who uses his time and energy well will be rewarded. He who is careless with both, will suffer.

One should also perhaps know when to engage and when not to, when to speak and when not to. One should know what helps one and what debilitates one.

The answer lies perhaps in caring deeply about oneself. If we do care deeply about ourselves we will care about our time and energy.
